Valentine Chefs

My little chefs were happy to make a Valentine surprise while Nathaniel and Elijah were at a chess tourney.  I had pinned this recipe for brownie hearts with raspberry buttercream, and it seemed like a perfect dessert for Nathaniel and also one everyone would enjoy.
I taught them how to measure chocolate with my little scale, and how to melt it in a double boiler.  They did most of the work themselves.  Here is Lydia cutting out the brownies into hearts:
Making the raspberry buttercream was a hit as well.  Malachi declared it "as good" as his favorite lemon icing.

Note that he is wearing both of his chicken aprons.  Goofy boy.
Here they are icing the brownies:

The treats were a hit with everyone.  Luckily, Elijah has started eating soft foods, so he devoured some, too.  He got braces on Wednesday.
